The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for visitors to the SAFE Institute (safeinstitute.org) Web site, and when you or your employer provide your personal information to us. Please read this Privacy Statement carefully.


Visitor Information

We may require that you provide visitor information to access certain portions of our Web site or when joining our mailing list. We collect personal information such as name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, and certain personal device information, such as physical location, IP address, application activity, data usage, and malware information – to authenticate you and/or your personal device for purposes of the security and functionality of our Web Site. In addition, we may also gather information about all of our users collectively, such as what areas of our Web site users visit most frequently and what services users access the most. We only use such data anonymously and in the aggregate. This information helps us determine what is most beneficial to our users and how we may continually create a better overall user experience.

Disclosure if Visitor Information to Third Parties

The SAFE Alliance will not share any information that personally identifies visitors with any third party (including advertisers and direct marketers), without the visitor’s permission, unless The SAFE Alliance believes in good faith such disclosure is required by law, or to protect our rights, or the safety or rights of other visitors, or the public.

Cookies

The SAFE Alliance uses cookie technology on its Web site. Cookies are small bits of computer code, usually stored on a personal computer user’s hard drive, which recognize repeat users, track usage patterns, and by remembering you, provide a better experience when you return to our Web site.

Links to Other Websites

The SAFE Alliance Web site may contain links to other Web sites. As a result, you may be directed to Web sites that are beyond the control of The SAFE Alliance. For example, if you click on a link or advertisement, it may take you from The SAFE Alliance Web site to a non-affiliated third-party Web site. This includes links to advertisers and co-branding entities. These other Web sites may collect personal information from you. They may also send cookies to you. The SAFE Alliance is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such other Web sites and such other Web sites are not bound by the terms of The SAFE Alliance Privacy Statement. In addition, if The SAFE Alliance references, recommends or co-brands with any third-party Web sites, The SAFE Alliance encourages visitors to these Web sites to read the privacy statements posted there, as The SAFE Alliance makes no representations about such third-party policies. If you feel that a Web site using The SAFE Alliance name or logo does not follow an acceptable privacy policy, please let us know.

Security

The SAFE Alliance has implemented security features and policy guidelines to safeguard the privacy of The SAFE Alliance visitor information from unauthorized access or improper use. We regularly review our security practices to consider appropriate new technology and methods. However, please be aware that despite our best efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable and The SAFE Alliance cannot guaranty or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.

Disclosure Required by Law

Under certain circumstances, The SAFE Alliance may be required by law, court order, governmental agency or law enforcement authority to disclose a visitor’s personal information. Notwithstanding anything in this Privacy Statement to the contrary, under such circumstances or when The SAFE Alliance reasonably believes it is required to disclose a visitor’s personal information, The SAFE Alliance reserves the right to disclose such personal information as is reasonably believed to be required.
